Be. The Empowerment

CityLab sprung to life five years ago from the Maximum Balance Foundation's effort to reduce recidivism in the San Francisco City and County jail system by teaching CISCO's IT Essentials course to incarcerated veterans. At that time, the program focused specifically on first-time offenders who were also U.S. military service veterans. The initial program's success has led to a wider application of related programs in the San Francisco Bay Area, including our newly announced TechShop program.

Do. Education/Cetification

The reality is that individuals at all levels of their careers are looking for new opportunities to learn. Certification enables people to demonstrate their abilities, to enjoy the personal pride and professional advancement and to stand out! The concept is simple. To have testing and certification at the heart of the learning experience as it becomes the global standard to measure success. The method is equally simple. Learn from experts who know Technology better than anyone else, get your pre-certification training, and referrals to employers and/or investors upon certification.

Go. Somewhere

Our Skills Development Fund pays for the training, the college administers the grant, and businesses create new jobs and improve the skills of their current workers. Over the course of the preview Johnny covers connecting things to the internet of everything, and practical ways to apply the learnings from the class into pre-employment preparation. By sponsoring or exhibiting at the event, you will join other major brands including Cisco, Pepsi, SouthWest Airlines, Airbnb, TechShop and many more.


According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2017 19.7 million children, more than 1 in 4, lived without a father in the home. Consequently, remains a “father factor” in nearly all of the societal ills facing America today.
